Top 100 Greatest Music Albums by av1976 (2017)

« View previous chartView next chart »

This is my attempt at a list of my favorite albums of all time. I have tried to stay away from compilations, live albums, soundtracks, best of albums, etc. Depending on the mood I am in, ranks for individual entries may vary widely. There is quite a bit of music I have not been introduced to or heard enough to appear on this list, so please do not be offended if your favorite musicians are not represented here. This is a work in progress, and will continue to be updated.
